Johannesburg - It’s not all anger and condemnation in Africa after President Donald Trump’s vulgar remark about immigrants. Some on the continent say they agree.

“President Donald Trump is absolutely right. Africa is a continent of s***,” says Mamady Traore, a 30-year-old sociologist in the West African nation of Guinea. “When you have heads of state who mess with the constitutions to perpetuate their power. When you have rebel factions that kill children, disembowel women as saints, who mutilate innocent civilians. Frankly, it must be said that it’s crap.”

Then again, others are not happy with Trump himself.

“Donald Trump is an unstable character who would critique his own image if it was doubled,” says Marlyatou Sow, a 32-year-old student in Guinea. “So, that he considers Africa as s***, it shows that he doesn’t have a heightened vision and that he is nothing less than a businessman who arrived at the White House purely by chance.”

Paulin; I assume you are being sarcastic. Further anytime a public figures uses grotesque language even related to someones background, it never works out well for the Jews. When will the Frum get over their infatuation with an unworthy man and recognize the harm he causes?

Another embarrassing headline by VIN. Why do the Frum defend this racist and pro-White Supremacist con man? A con man who defended the anti-semitism of the Charlottesville marchers?

I come from Venezuela. And now that's the worst s***hole country in South America. The man is right. I wouldn't change Trump with all his vulgarity for any of this commies in the Democratic party. Why don't they move to Venezuela after sucking up to Chavez and Maduro.

IT would be a treat if the photo matched the story by being a picture from south Africa instead of Haiti
